Expression through experimentation with media that relates to particular ideas and concepts allows for limitless areas of design. As a mixed media artist, using paint, ceramics, paper, wood, metal and found objects, I have abundant tools to explore questions and concepts related to human experiences that are often taken for granted. As a mother I often find inspiration in my children and the life that stirs around them. I create work that responds to small wonders, both relational and biological. My practice began as a way of managing and expressing a physical place of unrest while searching for some kind of grounding. Ultimately, this manifested into a focus on flow that is represented in the shapes and forms of my work. These forms are my way of trying to capture a sense of enclosure. By exploring these places with mixed media I am attempting to resolve internal and external spatial issues.
In recent years I have tried to direct my work towards social practice. I am interested in how art affects people, especially their personal response. I am also interested in inviting people into experiences related to art.
Currently I reside in Maine and am continuing my education at the University of Maine, as a candidate in the Intermedia Master of Fine Arts. I grew up in Southern California and have lived in many cities on both the East and West Coasts. I am happy to now be grounded in the rural beauty of Maine.
